Snapped the ‘before’ of this one before it was completely painted over…
I think this one was American Paint Company’s First Lady, a light pale lilac –
Painted hardware, and some crystals added as well…
an allover lace stencil on top, sealed with APC Topcoat Finish…
After, CeCe Caldwell Seattle Mist
Before, with a little painting started 🙂
American Paint Company Plymouth Rock, wiped back and sealed
Both tables, before
This one, went metallic with Caromal Colours Textured Basecoat Chocolate, then a warmer silver metallic blend dry brushed on
and lastly, Caromal Colours Toner, brushed on and wiped back to soften the glow
This after, CeCe Caldwell Smoky Mountain Gray over Simply White
After, another Caromal Textured Basecoat in Chocolate, then a champagne blend of metallic brushed over top
and Toner to soften. See that chocolate on the base popping through the finish? That’s Caromal’s great textured paint – when the top paint layer dries you can sand a little to ‘scuff’ down to the textured paint, then apply the toner –
She did the ‘feet’ bronze – love the contrast
and a pretty stencil on top, in Toner
This was Caromal’s Textured Basecoat Candy Apple OVER Textured Basecoat Mustard… Chipping Creme is applied (brush on and let dry) between the 2 paints, necessary when you layer 2 Caromal paints (it allows the paints to relase off each other)
So, brush/stipple on a layer of Textured Basecoat Mustard, dry. Brush layer Chipping Creme, dry. Brush layer of Textured Basecoat Candy Apple, dry. Sand/scrape to reveal. Brush on Toner and softly wipe back. Changed up the hardware too – great transformation!
CeCe Caldwell Young Kansas Wheat and Simply White
Before, a black piece
After, first coat Textured Basecoat Colonial Blue, second coat Rushmore, sanded and sealed
and new knob!
Before – (more at home that will need to be finished)
Textured Basecoat Parchment, first coat brushed on, second coat a wash. Lightly sanded and then glazed –
If you click on the photo you can see how soft and subtle the glaze is
No before, this after is Beach Glass under Navajo White
And this, CeCe Caldwell Santa Fe Turquoise…
I think Vintage White?
This one was cool – first layer Caromal Textured Basecoat Chocolate, brushed on thin, then second coat CeCe Caldwell Kentucky Mint. Sanded back to reveal a little of that texture and sealed with Satin Finish. That paper will be later modge podged to the drawer front, and a soft antique glaze applied to the whole piece
We don’t glaze the chalk/clay/mineral paints the night of workshop – I prefer getting a coat of sealer on the paint (which we DO do in class), and then waiting until the piece is good and dry, then applying the glaze… this way gives you way more control then trying to glaze over raw chalk/clay paint.
And remember, NO GLAZING over wax…
After, Caromal textured basecoat Chocolate, then a champagne metallic mix dry brushed over, sanded , and then Toner
A jewelry cabinet before…
After, a smooth metallic silver blend finish –
So lovely! Basecoat Reclaim Mocha, then a metallic silver blend dry brushed on, and Caromal’s Toner to give it a soft glow – stenciled with Toner. We added crystals inside each knob too 🙂
After – American Paint Company Dollar Bill, Navajo White, and a metallic allover lace stencil –
another smooth metallic silver blend finish – this one chose to leave more Toner on
and Caromal’s textured basecoat Parchment, with a glaze over top. Stencil applied with Toner
We love our workshops – they’re pretty intense – four hours packed full of non-stop finishing – A place to come, regardless of your paint experience – paint, create, laugh, learn, dry, and pack up your transformed piece to take home with you!
